Champion Your Students!

From ‘Completing a Job Application’ to ‘Carpentry’, Education Associates now offers educators the ability to award Digital Badge Credentials for over 100 Project Discovery kits and Achieve Life Skills titles.

From classroom preparation to job success and independent living, Digital Badge Credentials empower students and communicate crucial skill sets to friends, family and prospective employers.

What are Digital Badge Credentials from Education Associates?

Digital Badge Credentials are an exciting new enhancement to the nationally-recognized job preparation and life skills curriculum from Education Associates.

A Digital Badge Credential (DBC) is an electronic award recognizing specific student performance.  The receipt of a Digital Badge Credential signifies that the student has completed specific Education Associates curriculum and demonstrated the necessary competencies to show concept proficiency.

Each Digital Badge Credential represents a Project Discovery hands-on kit or an Achieve Life Skills title offered by Education Associates.  We currently offer DBC for all Project Discovery Kits with the exception of Career Awareness.  We also offer DBC for two distinct reading levels of every Achieve Life Skills kit in our catalog.

Your students have the opportunity to earn 186 unique Digital Badge Credentials on everything from Child Care to Customer Service!
